Gabriel:

I just recorded 1 Lead guitar, 2 doubling rhythm guitar and 1 drum track. I'm new to mixing and mastering. I would like to know what should I do next to make this track sounds good assume that it is done?

The recording is ok. Now you should equalizae your guitars. I suggest you make to "eliminate" with a curve all the frequencies below 200 hz and add some dbs at 1500 hz (with a wide Q to make the eq softer). I use Nuendo's channel EQs for this. Then you could add some compression to your guitars to let you put them a bit louder in the mix without problem. (I like Waves Compressors).

When you have the final mix I think that Izotope Ozone is the best choice to work but It's also a complex tool because it combines EQ, Compresors, Multiband Compresors, Harmonic Exiters, Reverb etc... but you could start with some presets and then try changing some parameters.
If you don't have this plugin you can use Waves Multimaximizer.

Ok, I hope that it helps you. Let me know if you have more questions.

Post here your final mix when you have it.

Gabriel.

Thank you, Gabriel.

I added the equalizer excatly like what you said. This equalization helps lowering the picking noise and adding some trebles to the lead. For compressor, I don't know what to do as of now. I adore the sounds from your lesson. For rhythm and lead, what kind of preset do you use? How many doubling , pan and volume did u tweak to the lesson at GMC? I still have too many unclear questions in my mind and do not know where should I start.

Great to hear that this eq works for you. wink.gif I think that you should now investigate the compressor possibilities. I used waves comps which have good presets to start for every instrument. Choose the guitar preset and then try changing some parameters until you get the sound that you want. (Sometimes the preset works ok but very often it doesn't).
I always use compressor in rhythm and lead guitars.

About doubling.... Bassically I record two guitars playing exactly the same and then I pan them. I do this with the rhythms and with the riffing guitars. I never do it with the solos. (However you could try this).

Sometimes I also add a bit of reverb. I usually use any Waves Trueverb or Rverb in the rhythm guitars and delay in the lead guitar.

What other question do you have?

Gabriel.
